He said the Hobbit ring could make a classmate disappeared, so they made him disappear.[su_center_ad]

[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]Kermit Elementary School officials called it a threat when the 9-year-old boy, Aiden Steward, in a playful act of make-believe, told a classmate he could make him disappear with a ring forged in fictional Middle Earth’s Mount Doom.

“It sounded unbelievable,” the boy’s father, Jason Steward, told the Daily News. He insists his son “didn’t mean anything by it.”

The Stewards had just watched “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” days earlier, inspiring Aiden’s imagination and leading him to proclaim that he had in his possession the one ring to rule them all.

    The real story here is that the principal and her cronies don’t like this kid and his family. He brought a factual treatise to the school, and they would have none of it. Then he called a black child “black”, which must be a grievous sin for reasons unknown. They were looking for excuses to mess with this kid, and they used this. The entire school’s administration is behaving like a 7-year-old with a bad attitude.

    Poor kid, not because of the ring thing but because he has to live in Texas.

      It figures. It’s not enough for the GOP to obstruct the President. Now they are putting all of Middle Earth at stake.

    Ridiculous. Time to move. Obviously they shouldn’t have to, but for the sake of the kid’s sanity, imagination, and general well being – MOVE. Y’all can borrow my truck, Mr. & Mrs. Stewart.

    Give me a break…a kid has an imagination and is punished for it…time for a new school! And what about the boob that bought into that story???

    • HessenBalkan February 3rd, 2015 at 12:52 pm

      No more having imagination allowed!!! All the kids have to be the same, think the same, learn the same…’s easier to lead a country were people are the same….no thinking outside the box. You have to obey….speak after me…you have to obey!!!

    Watch the family’s elected representatives put on their rings of invisibility, and disappear from the conversation.

    But I’ll bet if he’d have been some fundy Christian and told a classmate he’d disappear in the ‘rapture’ they’d have been just fine with it.

    I looked up Kermit. It’s a greenish puppet frog. You’d think a magic ring would be a requirement at the school.

    That hobbit ring is a hoax! It doesn’t work! I tried it on Louie Gohmert, and he’s still here. Piece o’ junk!

      LOL!!!! Good one

    This is what you get, when you have a “zero tolerance” policy. Administrators are no longer allowed to use discretion or common sense. They have to punish harmless comments, along with credible threats. Which leads one to wonder: why go to college and learn how to run a school, if the handbook makes all your decisions for you? Any high school graduate should be able to qualify.

    The school officials should have confiscated the ring and used it to magic up two brain cells.

  13. SETXBubba February 3rd, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Yep, the good ole boy and “That’s not Christian!” attitude in Texas….(note my nick is a parody ok?? 🙂 ) The same people who took the ring away and suspended the poor kid probably also get drunk every weekend and have skeletons in their closets….
    Gawd this makes me ashamed to claim I AM from Texas.
